/ Gearing for Crib Goch
I think the level section to the pinnacles would be fine on a 26 cassette but there's a bit of a step on the north ridge that may warrant something bigger?
And how do scrambling grades match up with TdF climbing grades?
Grade 1 = HC
Grade 2 = MD (mon Dieu) etc
Sod the gearing - I'd be practicing balance and bunny-hopping skills!
"Twenty six! Twenty six! Pah! When I was a lad I was considerably harder than you. I rode up everything with a 12-18. I once fitted a 21, but that was for a club ride up Engineer's Slab. Didn't even have to get oujt of the saddle . . . . ad nauseum "
